Depends on how much you want to spend and your requirements. Decide which fabric - Sunbrella is very good. Decide what type and size frame you want - aluminum or stainless steel. Stainless is more expensive than aluminum. Mine has sunbrella fabric with aluminum frame. Also, do you want bars or straps holding it in place. Base on the caliber of your boat I would recommend Sunbrella, stainless, bars; and preferably a Mastercraft one. You should be able to get one from a dealer but not sure. You also need to define the height if you do not buy a MC one. Generally on the tournament ski boats 30 inch height is typical. some cut them lower and some like higher.
Great Feedback everyone. Thanks. Regarding straps...do they vibrate much in the wind? Whereas the bars would be preferred? Also, with respect to height...I"m 6'4" and was considering a Bimini height of 46". Do most tournament boats really go with 36" or less? Seems awfully low. But then again I don't really want a "sail" either. Thoughts????
